Baptist Memorial Hospital - Desoto PGY1 Pharmacy Residency
Baptist Memorial Hospital - Desoto
Location: Southaven, Mississippi
The Baptist Memorial Hospital – Desoto PGY1 Pharmacy residency program is a 12-month program that will emphasize training in all aspects of the acute care pharmacy practice model with the goal of developing the residents’ expertise, knowledge, and skills in multiple clinical areas including, but not limited to, internal medicine, critical care, infectious diseases, and cardiology. Participation in the hospital’s medication management process via the Pharmacy and Therapeutics committee and sub-committees will occur over the course the residency year.
While the primary focus will be on clinical activities, residents will also be trained on order verification, medication dispensing, and preparation of intravenous medications, which furthers the understanding of providing pharmaceutical care in an inpatient setting.
The pharmacy department plays a vital role in targeted initiatives including heart failure, chest pain, stroke, sepsis, as well as medication safety. Decentralized clinical pharmacists participate in multidisciplinary meetings with physicians and staff to enhance patient care and improve clinical outcomes.
